2009 Health Trend to Watch For: Nutrition Bars as a Meal

 

·         Read the labels: choose bars with low sugar, high protein (about 30 g for a meal; 15 g for a snack).

·         Be ready to pay a little more for the bar with more nutrients.

·         Meal bars should not be the main source of your diet. Eat a variety of meats, vegetables, dairy, and fruit for an overall healthy diet.
